Thomas Nelson. Sept. 2023. 352p. ISBN 9780840706874. pap. $16.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Brynn Cornell has finally made it as cohost of a popular morning show, but then a hot-mic moment leads to most of the country realizing that “America’s sweetheart” has a dark streak. As damage control, Brynn returns to the center of her faux pas, her hometown of Adelaide Springs, CO, to make in-person amends to the people she offended. The citizenry of tiny Adelaide Springs, however, aren’t quite ready to welcome Brynn back, and they assign a city council member to be her minder. Sebastian Sudworth moved to Adelaide Springs to hide and recover from his traumatic experience as a war correspondent and the subsequent breakdown of his marriage but unexpectedly grew to love the small town and won’t allow his neighbors to be used and manipulated. Brynn, however, finds herself remembering all the good things about the town while confronting what drove her away. Brynn and Sebastian’s dislike for each other quickly turns to budding respect and attraction.
VERDICT Turner’s (The Do-Over) latest is fun, fast, and heartwarming. This book will appeal to anyone who loves enemies-to-lovers romance and to readers who appreciate when a community plays a central role in the story.
